Problem: Slipstreaming IE6SP1 in Win2K SP4

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I went to Install Windows 2000 SP4 with the latest hotfixes & softwares, and IE6SP1 is one of them.

Over all installation of this windows I got the same error; IE prevent windows from starting normally in the first logon. I noticed that neither explorer.exe does load nor any other software (Hotfix, Dxdllreg.exe).

Is there ANY way to automatically install IE6SP1 over Win2k? or Slipstream it? I added it to CmdLines.txt and IE6SP1 installed flawlessly but on the next (or first) logon, it has to configure some settings and other programs which shud run dont run at the immediate next logon but at the second logon.

Thanks in advance :thumbup

I had the exact problem too.

Way i found around is to install ie6sp1 before starting to install everything else, while running it from cmdlines.txt and everything went fine.

Also the same problem came up if i had used nlite over 2kSp4.

Finally i figured nlite is still in beta stage and not a major supporter of 2000 so, dropped nlite, used full install and everything went just fine.

I had this problem and I solved it by using the IEAK6 (Internet Explorer Administrator Kit). You can change settings in IE6 using this tool so it's highly recomended to use for distributing ie6.

Select the flat mode only and go through the process of the options...basically just go default with everything unless you want to customize. when this is done, I renamed the \FLAT\WIN32\EN folder to IE6 and then put it in my $oem$\$1\hotfix folder and call on the setup of ie6\ie6setup /Q:A /R:N in the runonceex section before my other hotfixes get ran.

@historic in my batch file that installs hotfixes, I have Windows Installer v2 first then IE6SP1, I made them in that order to shorten the path (Directly Install IE6SP1 hotfixes not IE5 hotfixes then IE6SP1 hotfixes)

@scorpi073 I Will try IEAK6

Thanks to all, but I am really confused about @ToBe Post so any clear answer about that topic.

Hello everyone,

I have bad news.

@scorpi073, I have tried IEAK but it failed.

@koszopal, I was already using your methode but It does not work. I am still having the same problem.

I have also tried to separate DX9C from cmdlines.txt and I put it in the first logon. I made this because I was suspecting that IE6SP1 & DX9C hate each other. When I put IE6SP1 and all it hotfixes in cmdlines.txt and DX9C in firstlogon.cmd the result was worse. DX9C gave me lots of errors msgs (it said that KS.sys and others couldn't be installed properly) :realmad: PLUS Explorer.exe crashed.

In another installation, I forced Explorer.exe to be run in the first logon, but no success.

The only two ways that remain are either

1) To Install DX9c in cmdlines.txt and IE6SP1 + all it hotfixes in the first logon and by doing so I have to make 2 reboots

2) To Install IE6SP1 in cmdlines.txt and DX9c and IE hotfixes in the first logon and by doing so I have only to reboot once.

What I need from you, my friends, which one should I use in my next try ? :unsure:

I will post my results again when I finish the next try. B)
